Flirty Dancing Cast – Ashley Banjo
The host of the show is, of course, Ashley – after all, it his name on the title!
A street dancer from Essex, Ashley rose to fame in 2009 when his dance troupe, Diversity, won Britain’s Got Talent series 3.
Ashley was not only the lead dancer but the choreographer, too.
The 30-year-old soon made the step across to TV where he is now a judge on ITV series Dancing on Ice as well as Sky 1 talent show Got to Dance.
Ashley and his now wife, Francesca, got married in July 2015. They have been together for over 10 years and are expecting their first child together.
Jordan is Ashley’s younger brother, who helped form dance group Diversity.
The 26-year-old has also made a successful step across to TV and is one of the current judges on BBC dance show The Greatest Dancer.
Jord and girlfriend Naomi have a son called Cassius Ashley.
There’s also one other member of the Banjo family gang, little sister Talisa.
The final part of the three-man team that will be scrubbing up the civilians’ dance moves is Perri Kiely.
You guessed it, he’s another Diversity dancer.
Perri was one of the most memorable members of the gang with his big shaggy hair. However, he’s all grown up now!
The 23-year-old has appeared on E4’s Celebs Go Dating and Celebrity Bake Off in the past. Here’s how he looked in 2009 vs now!
